With funding from Alberta’s Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program and support from rural municipalities, the Green Acreages program has expanded and now accepts applications from small acreage, hobby farm, and recreational property owners to fund cost-shared, eligible stewardship initiatives on their properties.
Through this incentive program, eligible projects may be funded 50:50 up to a maximum of $2500 per project on a cost-share basis (i.e., property owners must contribute the same or greater cash or in-kind value to the projects). To be eligible, cost-share projects must incorporate beneficial management practices that will lessen the impacts of flooding and drought incidents.
Kneehill County has Green Acreages workbooks available. Please call Ag Services at 403-443-5541 for more information, and to reserve a workbook.
